“The CAP is an important voice for your practice and the patients you serve. I’ve worked closely with pathologists in my home state of California and can tell you first-hand how important it is for you to get to know your legislators and become an advocate to help shape health care policy.

The CAP and its pathologists have been a critical force in fighting with me to protect the integrity of Medicare and to make sure patients get the quality care they deserve. I encourage you to stand up and be counted.”

Congressman Tom Price, MD (GA-06)Congressman Tom Price, MD (GA-06)

“Having practiced orthopedic surgery for over 20 years before coming to Congress, I know firsthand that putting Washington in charge is the wrong prescription for what ails our health care system. In order to ensure patients, families, and doctors are the ones making medical decisions, physicians need to be advocates on behalf of their profession.

Policymakers need to hear from you about what solutions will help you best serve your patients. Legislation and regulations have real-world implications. Don’t sit on the sidelines. Get involved and make a difference!”

“Attending the CAP Policy meeting was very rewarding for me professionally. Being able to hear first-hand from the nation’s foremost policy authorities allowed me to identify policy changes that will affect my practice. All pathologists, regardless of practice setting, would benefit by attending this informative program.

Given the impact that payment policy has on the work that I do every day, I plan to attend the CAP Policy Meeting annually to stay ahead of the curve and learn about up-to-date changes occurring now in the health care system.”

“As a member of an extremely busy and growing pathology practice, staying ahead of the ever-changing health care policy landscape is critical to the success of our practice. Because the CAP brings together prominent thought leaders on a broad range of timely economic and regulatory issues impacting practicing pathologists, my participation is essential.

Furthermore, the ability to advocate on the Hill given this time of uncertainty makes the decision to attend a particularly easy one and I encourage all CAP members to attend.”

“Now, more than ever, pathologists should attend the CAP Policy Meeting.

It’s a critical way that pathologists can help advance our agenda so that stakeholders learn firsthand, as part of CAP Hill Day, the role that pathologists play in coordinating and delivering quality care and improving health outcomes”
